Digital Humanities & Artificial Intelligence

Keynote Speaker:

Dr Barbara McGillivray (King’s College London)


We invite scholars, researchers, and practitioners to participate in a focused exploration of the intersections between Digital Humanities (DH) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) at a one-day conference at the University of Reading.


The conference will feature three distinct strands, each proving a unique perspective on the evolving landscape of DH-AI:

Strand 1: Cultural Heritage

  • Explore the role of artificial intelligence in preserving, interpreting, and making accessible cultural heritage.
  • Discuss innovative projects and technologies that digitise, catalog, and safeguard cultural artifacts and historical sites.
  • Examine the impact of AI on the study and dissemination of cultural heritage.

Strand 2: Ethics

  • Delve into the ethical considerations and challenges posed by the use of AI in Digital Humanities.
  • Discuss issues of bias, representation, and inclusivity in AI-driven research and projects.
  • Explore strategies and best practices for ensuring ethical AI applications in the digital humanities.

Strand 3: Synthetic Media

  • Investigate the creative potential of AI-generated content, such as art, music, literature and virtual environments.
  • Showcase projects that leverage synthetic media for storytelling, cultural expression, and education.
  • Examine the ethical and cultural implications of AI-generated content in the Digital Humanities.


Full programme coming soon.


This is a free event sponsored by the Digital Humanities CoP at the University of Reading.
